  • A. Totally, It has a computer attachment, two HDMI ports, two USB and all the standard ports for older hardware. It is amazing, we were able to hook up a Wii, DVD, Computer, Ipod docking station, Surround sound and still have empty ports.

  • A. Yes, I was able to use this with my Apple Macbook Pro (July, 2010, 13" model). In order to accomplish this, you must buy a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Female Adapter Cable (I purchased this through Amazon for around $5.00) and an HDMI cable. Simply plug it into one of the HDMI ports on the back of the TV and choose it through the remote. Presto, you have a GIGANTIC monitor now to either work or download content from iTunes.

I had this TV Shipped "site to store" for free, and it only took four days (including the weekend), on the week before xmas. The TV is exactly what I wanted and expected. The only thing that isn't perfect about this TV, is the sound quality. I am a professionally trained recording and mixing engineer and my review of the audio output is not great. The built-in EQ can push you in the right direction, but you can never get it perfectly flat. I have a feeling that the way the sound is tweaked in such a way to make the built-in speakers sound good, but I am not using them. It really is not that big of a deal. Most people probably either won't notice the problem, or will use the built-in speakers. I gave the audio quality 4/5 stars, so this should tell you that it isn't that big of a deal. The picture is great! The menu is easy to learn and use. The remote is average in size. All in all, I am 100% satisfied with this purchase. I only buy refurbished electronics!

Awful Substandard Packaging / Buyer Beware
3/12/2011

Customer review by bluespark

The box was not original and the package it came in was semi-open. The TV was missing 6 of the 9 base stand screws and the corner of the base had a small crack (once the TV was set up, you couldn't see it). Being handy, I hand some that matched up but this can be incredibly frustrating to someone who has to run out and buy the screws. The positive side is that you will get a TV that is an incredible deal. Remember, in order to have an awesome picture, you MUST hook the TV up to an HD cable box. With that said, the picture is excellent is the sound is very good. You will benefit by hooking up the TV either a Vizio sound bar or external amplifier. But don't worry, if you don't have these the sound will be just fine. I think if Walmart and Vizio are teaming up to sell refurbished goods, they should make sure that the TV is complete with all hardware in a sealed box. Best thing, if it doesn't work out, Walmart gives you an unconditional 90-day "No questions asked and no restocking fee" warranty. Can't go wrong with that!

The picture on this TV is great! Especially when watching HD channels or Blu-ray! Excellent price for such a good TV. Site to store shipping was fast (about a week). The box arrived with no damage and the product was in perfect condition (be sure to look for the little screw used to mount the TV to its base that many have said was missing - we found it in the large bag that the TV is wrapped in, it's just loose, so you have to watch for it!) Really easy assembly and set up in minutes. Was able to add a 2-year warranty at customer service in the store during pick-up (I could not find the option to do so on the online check out). Picking up from site-to-store was fast and easy, and the TV fit in the backseat of my car. Like other reviewers have said, the volume tends to jump around a bit. I tried the TRU volume feature and it doesn't seem to help much with that, though does seem to help a little. Overall, great TV and great value...would definitely recommend!!

I have had this product for 10 days now and I am very satisfied! The picture quality is great! The sound quality is like most TVs....basic but I also purchased the Panasonic SC-BTT350 5.1-Channel 3D Blu-ray Home Theater System and the Omnimount Sedona Ebony TV Stand with Mount, for TVs up to 42" and the sound is great and as the old saying goes "I am sitting pretty!" The TV, DVD Blu-ray system and TV stand are a beautiful sight. I wish I had a picture to show, but I am at work and want to rate this item before I forget. If you are loooking for a good buy, get this item while the getting is good!

This tv is amazing. I've seen brand new tv's of the same brand before, and there is no difference in the one that I received. I saw many reviews stating that it was no in the original box and that it was missing things. Mine was not. Mine had all it's parts and I really don't think that it matters if it's in the original tv box. It works the same way! The picture is amazing and so is the sound! I would recommend this TV to anyone looking for a good one. This is my first time buying a TV and it's perfect!

Easy set up. Good picture. There seems to be a problem with sound. If it is being run on my DVR the sound will suddenly get very loud and then be lower. I do have a slight problem with wanting audio loud so it may be me. I have not had anyone else listen to it yet. My first buy as refurb and when I was picking it up they had a Sony new for clearence in store for $458.00 if I had not done site to store I would have purchased other. No real problem that would make me not buy this set . Great color and very good price I did purchase the three year warrenty which is the first time I have purchaed one. Good value, fast set up, good pictue, sound ?? I would probably buy again. My doggies do enjoy the larger screen while I am at work.....

My wife actually made this purchase through Walmart. After she told me it was a refurbished item I was real skeptical and unsure whether I will keep it or not I took it home and made sure it worked and then placed it back in the box A month later after making room for it I placed it in my living room where no one watches TV. I now have to get another TV for my computer room because I dont get a chance to enjoy it A GREAT PURCHASE, WORTH THE MONEY SPENT

I have owned this TV for about 3 months. I am extremely happy with it so far. The reviews of the TV were very helpful and accurate. The only complaint I have is common among HDTVs, and that is the on-board sound quality is just OK. However, it hasn't been enough of an issue to make me want to buy a surround sound system. Overall, I am pleased.

After a LOT of research, I finally settled on this refurbished VIZIO and had it shipped site-to-store. The site-to-store process was achingly slow with poor tracking, but it was free. Shipping and handling on this TV would have just been stupid. It did come in an nondescript brown box, but the box was in great condition and so was the TV. This VIZIO is really a GREAT value. At 42", it's HUGE. It has a really good picture and sound and great contrast. I'm not sure if it's really 100,000:1 (that just sounds like marketing-ese), but when we hook it up to the PS3, you can really see the difference it the various levels of shadow. For my normal HD TV viewing, it's phenomenal with our Comcast XFINITY service. I've set it to a rich color function and it's brilliant! I would absolutely recommend this TV to anyone.
